Sony's newest high-end noise-cancelling headphones are already deeply discounted

Sony's newest high-end noise-cancelling headphones are already deeply discounted
As predicted by a number of reliable Apple leakers and insiders in the last few weeks, the oft-rumored and highly anticipated AirPods Studio haven't been announced alongside the 5G-enabled iPhone 12 family after all. 

That means you can either continue to wait for the company's first-ever own-brand over-ear headphones, which may or may not see daylight at a separate virtual event sometime next month, or purchase one of Sony's incredibly well-reviewed existing options at a cool discount right now.

While the older WH-1000XM3 variant is obviously cheaper, going $50 off its $350 list price and an extra $30 off at checkout over on Amazon, those hot new WH-1000XM4 cans are also on sale at an almost surprisingly hefty markdown for the remainder of the Prime Day 2020 festivities. Keep in mind that you will need an Amazon Prime membership to claim this particular deal and shave a total of 75 bucks off the regular price of a special bundle including the headphones themselves and a $25 gift card.

The gift card, in case you're wondering, will be physically shipped inside a mini envelope together with your discounted Sony WH-1000XM4 units, allowing you to save some money on a future order with no restrictions, fees, catches, strings attached, or expiration dates.

As for the over-ear wireless Bluetooth headphones, these bad boys are pretty much as good as they come in terms of everything from overall sound quality to battery life, and most of all, active noise cancellation technology. 

At this reduced price, it's virtually impossible to think of a bad thing to say about the Sony WH-1000XM4... unless, of course, you're on a tighter budget and don't mind the significantly humbler battery endurance scores of the older Bose QuietComfort 35 Series II, which are currently on sale at a deeper discount for Prime members only.
